To the Farmers of Iowa 



Winning the war is the business of every loyal citizen of 
this country today. Conservation of foodstuffs is an impor- 
tant patriotic duty which the government urges upon all. 

As a means to conserving feed and increasing production 
of meat and dairy products, the government now appeals to 
farmers to buy silos. This appeal must be heeded by loyal 
Iowa farmers — the silo is so necessary to conservation that 
the purchase of one now is a duty owed to state and nation. 
The silo is the great feed saver — makes succulent, nutritious 
feed of the whole corn plant. It saves the full feed value — 
an average acre of Iowa corn has a feed value of 66 2-3% 
greater as silage than it has as matured ear corn and stalk 
pasture. 

Every Iowa farmer who keeps twelve or more head of cattle 
- — or 100 or more sheep — is officially called upon to put up a 
silo this season. The Iowa Council of National Defense will 
take steps to insure delivery of all silos ordered by Iowa farm- 
ers and, if necessary, will see to it that plenty of labor is 
available for filling every silo. 

Order a silo now. Iowa must respond promptly to the gov- 
ernment call for more silos — we must meet our patriotic obli- 
gations in full. Do not delay until fall to order — select and 
order your silo now and help put Iowa "over the top" with her 
quota of silos ahead of other states.
